I don't know if you read my blog much, but there's a little window into handwork class in my current post. Apparently the kitchener stitch is officially a recess activity.

What a beautiful work they made !

I'm have a 2 grader and 4 grader her at home and we are always looking for some ideas. May I ask , do you get the patterns from a book or do you make them yourself?

we are not using a book for the pattern but we do follow guidelines.
always dark on the bottom, mirror image and colors that match.

the pin cushion can be done in a 4 way mirror or 2 way mirror. I don't show one in this post. the pouch that you see the kids embroidering is done 2 way. a line in the middle and dark at the bottom and light to the top
